Demetrius Bell hasn't played since the team's fourth game against Cincinnati, suffering a shoulder injury in that contest. That trend will change this weekend against the San Diego Chargers.
In an effort to evaluate what they have at left tackle, the Bills are going to plug Bell in to the game this weekend at left tackle, and only left tackle. There was a school of thought lingering that maybe Bell could be better suited at a different position, but he will only protect Ryan Fitzpatrick's blind side on Sunday.
Rookie left tackle Chris Hairston is still expected to start the game.
